HAPPY NEW YEAR!
What are your resolutions?
What are your resolutions?
Hi everyone...just stopping by quickly to say happy new year! I am looking forward to a fresh start and hoping '08 goes better than '07 did. I don't have long since DS is on my lap and pounding the keys every chance he gets.
I hope everyone had a good and safe celebration. We stayed in with a couple friends. I was supposed to spend the night with Mighty-Mama so I was more than a little blue to say the least. DS has an ear infection/upper respiratory infection and the ped put him on antibiotics which I am not happy about I have excruciating pain in my left ear so I am wondering if I am headed in the same direction. Have to go to the insurance webpage tomorrow to find a GP - I never go to the doc except for specialty stuff.
Have a good night everyone...see you tomorrow!
The one thing that drives us both crazy is when she's nursing, she kicks her legs to move herself up but the problem is that she pops herself off the boob and than screams that its not in her mouth. I relatch her and than it's a constant cycle of that for the rest of the nursing session. Any thoughts?
Though I find myself highly amused that she tries to get her thumb and my nipple in her mouth at the same time. Silly girl, trying to have her cake and eat it too.
Happy New Year Everyone!
Wow! I'm already behind on this thread!
All the photos look great!
Wedi, BIG s. Hang in there Mama.
My resolutions are: try to be more positive (dh says I look to the negative too often); get some excercise; Date night w/ DH (he wants once a week but I'm voting for every other)
I'm already having a problem with the first resolution as I've been sitting here at the pump for almost 20 mins. and barely have an ounce. Our ped wants me to bottle feed every other feeding 4-6ounces and I hardly ever have that amount of ebm which means I'm supplementing more w/ the Nutramaigen. After the weigh in last week with the 9 ounce gain, I thought I could just say, ok this is what works and at least DS still nurses but I hate using the supplement.
I'm hoping that the lack of supply at the pump is b/c DS has been waking every couple of hours throughout the night to snack. Growth spurt perhaps?
This leads me to the 3rd resolution... if DH and I go out for a few hours (which we really need to do, even though I hate leaving ds), whom ever cares for ds will have to use the supplement b/c there no such thing as a stash here of ebm.
Maybe I have to double up the herbs. Has anyone ever done that?
Big ((((Sigh))) Moving on...
Marshall is going to be 5 months on Friday!! Crazy!! I think he's doing pretty well milestone wise considering he was born early. I'd say he's acting like a 4 1/2 month old. He's smiling like crazy now, talking up a storm, he's reached out his arms a few times for me when he wants to nurse (this make me and at the same time.
Alright Mamas, the creature is stirring from his nap. Here's to a fantastic 2008
